16 November 2019 from Danielle in Mountain weather

Many regions in France were on yellow and orange alert due to heavy snowstorms yesterday. This morning ski resorts across the Alps woke up to bluebird skies and fresh powder. Precipitation is expected to slow down for today but may pick up again tomorrow.

Heavy storms and precipitation

Ardèche, Rhône and Isère were among the departments on orange alert yesterday. The storms ravaged much of southeastern France along the coast and the Alps, leaving 300,000 homes without electricity and killing a man when a tree fell on him. The good news? The southern French Alps have received about a foot of powder, with snow falling well down into the valleys. Some French ski areas are still experiencing some light snow this morning, but most ski resorts opened their curtains upon blue skies this morning. Austria and Switzerland also have snow at higher altitudes, although this is rain in many of the villages.

Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
